Summer Camp Update; Wait-List Participation on Swim Team Clarification; Grounds-Facilities Update; 2014 By-Laws Amendment; Future Events
Although we are in for a last blast of cold with temps dipping into the 30s Friday and Saturday nights…, looks like we made it through the winter and are headed for a new pool season with opening day on May 9! We also have a work day coming up on Saturday April 25 to get the pool squared-away for the 2015 season. In today’s eSplash we have an update on Summer Camp, a clarification of the wait-list participation on swim team proposal, an update on facilities and work day, and a notice of a By-Laws amendment voted on last year.
Summer Camp Update
Summer camp session dates are (1) June 1 thru June 12 and (2) June 15 thru June 26. Session 1 is nearly full with 8 slots still available and Session 2 has 22 slots available. Nancy Nichols is still looking for 3 group counselors.
See message below sent out in the 2/20/2015 eSplash:
The registration application for the Venetian Summer Camp can be found on the website: www.venetianpools.org under the “Summer Camp” tab or click here: 2015 Summer Camp Application. The 1st session is (June 1 – 5 and June 8 – 12) and Session 2 is (June 15 – 19 and June 22 – 26).

Venetian Summer Camp is looking for creative leaders who enjoy working with children to serve as group counselors for the month of June. High school seniors and college students who are interested should contact Nancy Nichols: email@example.com
Clarification: Wait-List Participation on Swim Team
In the 1/25/2015 eSplash we reported that a proposal was made to the Board to consider allowing wait-list families to participate on the swim team due to a downward trend in the 6U age group. We want to let the membership know that this was only an idea and the current Board has no plans to make any decisions on this proposal at this time.
Grounds-Facilities Update and Work Day
The pool buildings will be painted (exterior) in April. Bridge and shelter work is ongoing this month on the recaptured area known as the “Venetian – or V-Oasis” – the property west of the pool that borders N Parkwood. The Master Plan Committee has asked if we could combine work/clean-up day on the V-Oasis area with Pool work day; standby for future notice as to particular tasks that need to be accomplished on April 25 for the pool and the V-Oasis areas. We will be adding a small number of new tables/umbrellas and chairs this year.
By-Laws Amendment Re: VPCA Employees
The Board voted to amend the By-Laws (Article III, Section 3.07) last May to allow employees of the Pool to be entitled to free guest privileges during the time they are employed and further, the Board may authorize to allow family members to participate on the swim team. Though this amendment was voted on last May, we did not have all Board members signatures until late last year. The entirety of the amendment was published last year on the website and can be found under the Members Only page on the Member Files tab “05-11-2014-VPCA Amendment_Article III Sect 3.07.”
